The Energy Information Administration reported Wednesday that U.S. crude inventories rose by 600,000 barrels for the week ended April 16. On average, analysts polled by S&P Global Platts forecast a decline of 4.4 million barrels for crude stocks, while the American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday reported a 436,000-barrel climb, according to sources. The EIA data also showed crude stocks at the Cushing, Okla., storage hub declined by 1.3 million barrels for the week. The EIA reported that gasoline supply was up by 100,000 barrels, while distillate stockpiles fell by 1.1 million barrels for the week.
